I don't mind it if he's testing the windows and learning from it.

Learn from it and recognize when to pull down and run. You'll never learn if you don't fail a few times.

Great post g5, that's what I'm chalking it up to as well.

have to also take into consideration the rain today. i imagine it would be more of a factor in TC than reg. season because of all the learning and implementing of the playbook.

josephperson Ron Rivera said Josh Norman's hamstring is still sore; ditto Thomas Davis' knee. Rivera said Norman should be back "pretty soon."

Weird about TD, considering the other day they said he was held out just as a precaution... Good to hear about Norman though.

Did Cam have any games where he thrived in the rain last year? I dont recall any good ones but I only remember one. He does have small hands for his size. Might make it hard to grip the ball right or something. Might even be as simple as how he takes the snap from center. Whether the laces hit right on the hand or whatever.

Then again might be nothing at all since we're just getting going. . .

Oh yeah there is also the whole Chud is opening the playbook feeding Cam thousands of new probabilites that he is just now testing out. Yeah me personally, I dont do so consistently well, the first time I test out a new strategy.

i figure the best way to keep TD around is to keep him as a part timer.

in TC and preseason, just keep him in enough to get/keep him loose and in game shape. that should get him into the season.

then during the season keep him in just in certain packages and situations. dude shouldn't see the field more than 20-25 snaps per game. i'd prefer that number to be well under 20 snaps, tbh. he's too valuable an asset to risk exposure to injury very often.

Davis should get a job with Carolina as a LB coach when his last play finally occurs, whenever that is. We owe him that.

Al Wallace said he spoke with him and his knee is sore but he is fine and the soreness was expected

I've never heard anything about Newton having small hands... he holds a football the way a lot of people would hold a baseball.

I think it is just a matter of Newton trying to sling it in there. At the end of the day, it's training camp and that's what it's for. I hope this is a sign the defense is progressing also. I'm sure Cam is going to try passes in TC he wouldn't during a regular season game unless it was necessary.

Quite a few of Newton's picks last year came late in the 4th Quarter when the Panthers were behind and he was just slinging it and the defense knew what was coming.

Nothing before a bad performance during the regular season holds any weight. I remember people commenting on Twitter how bad (inaccurate) Newton looked warming up before the Arizona game last year, and then he proceeded to throw for 400 yards.

Newton wasn't exactly spectacular during the preseason last year as hard as it is to remember. Picks aside, I have also read where he is making a LOT of incredible throws this year. And also getting the vast majority of the reps. That is awesome, b/c I don't think that was the case last year. When I visited TC last year Clausen honestly looked better- point is that it's hard to take but so much value.

One thing to remember too is that when the bullets start flying for real, the running threat of Newton greatly affects how the defense plays. The defense is also trying out a lot of blitzes, etc. that a defense may not be able to actually run during a game that mattered
